The writer relates that the utopia he dreams of would not be based on absolute values and would not be religious unless confined to the self. The writer asserts that all rules made will be such that they deter individuals from harming the society or another person and independence of thought and body will be the basis of the society.

From the Paper:

"I believe that the ideal state cannot be achieved unless every individual is taken as a separate entity. As no one person is the same it would be difficult to create an ideal where all the people are satisfied and accepting of the situation created. However, considering that this is about my Ideal state and the role of religion and individual in it "I will present it from my personal perspective.
Plato's contribution to philosophy was the recognition of phronesis, or moral intelligence, as the faculty in man which was able to grasp the meaning of absolute moral value. With the help of the concept of phronesis Plato was able to set up an objective standard of Absolute Good upon which the good of society and the individual in society depended. He proposed to set up a model state according to his standard of absolute goodness, where men would be related to one another in perfect justice. In his theory of the Ideal State, Plato separated his value system from any actually existing political organization, and made the new society of his creation subject to his absolute standards."
